Every 30 days we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize. This month Jenson USA pitched in a $100 gift card! Vital MTB member logocza wrote several great reviews, earning the Top Reviewer spot. Here's a recap of his best:

Park Tool PCS-9 Economy Home Repair Stand - "If you are a home mechanic who wants a cheap stand that will hold up well unlike other cheaper designs with plastic parts, this is the ticket. It may not be as light, stable or have as many bells and whistles as higher end stands, but it simply works. Professional mechanics who like to change the angle often or work on bikes at weird angles may find this stand to be a bit tippy and cumbersome, but I think for the average joe this will not be an issue. I would recommend this stand to anyone looking to start working bikes themselves or those who want a simple, but functional repair stand that will last." - Read more»

RockyMounts SwitchHitter Rack - "Overall though I think RockyMounts has hit it out of the park (pun intended) with this rack. The price may be a bit high for some, but I think the build quality and great customer service from RockyMounts makes the added cost worth it over a company like Thule or Yakima. The low profile, thru axle compatibility, and overall functionality of this rack make it a winner in my books. If you are in the market for a rack that will work with road bikes, DH bikes, and standard mountain bikes and look good doing it, check out the SwitchHitter." - Read more»

Park Tool P-Handled Torx Wrench Set - "I do wish the set came with a holder like the Park tool hex wrenches come with, but this is a minor nitpick and they are fine in my tool drawer. These have been durable for me, even my T25 that I use quite often, but I know that in a busy shop the ends can get rounded off and become less precise. Park does sell the wrenches individually though so if you do wear out one size it is not a huge deal. If you regularly work on bikes with Torx bolts, this set will save you time and frustration even with the more simple tasks. The price may seem a bit steep, but there is a reason most shops go with Park Tool, they make quality tools that function well and last a long time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these to other bike mechanics and even those who just like to work on their own bikes like myself." - Read more»

7iDP Control Knee Pad - "After putting a lot of time in with these pads, they are definitely my go to. The logos on the back of the legs are peeling a bit and the knee plates are scratched up, but the stitching is still great (unlike my fox pads) and they seem like they will last through at least another season of abuse. The pads do require you to remove your shoes which is not a big deal to me, but some people do not like that. Overall I think this pad is great for those who want something a little more burly than the flimsy sleeves that have come out over the past season and yet not as bulky or restrictive as full on DH pads. They are comfortable to pedal in, yet have not let me down in terms of protection. The price might be a bit high for some, but with the number of knee injuries I have gotten in the past, having a pad that offers both protection and yet pedals well is worth the extra dough." - Read more»
